The agency determination was neither irrational nor arbitrary and capricious (Swakeen v New York City Health & Hosps. Corp., 39 AD3d 287 , lv denied 9 NY3d 809 ). Ample evidence in the record supports the conclusion that the administrative law judge's credibility determinations should not be disturbed (see Matter of D'Augusta v Bratton, 259 AD2d 287 ). Furthermore, the evidence established that respondent United Federation of Teachers did not breach its duty of fair representation (see Mellon v Benker, 186 AD2d 1020 ).
We have considered petitioner's remaining contentions and find them unavailing.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
